Just announced MegaDeath!! Along with Anthrax thats 2 of the Big 4. This is the second band I’m pretty excited about seeing. Never seen them so it will be a first for me. This thing is shaping up to be amazing for what it is.

Also some band that sounds Christian. Probably gonna do a set with POD and Skillet. Lamb of God on the billet Study

Very nice Purple! We'll be seeing The Last Bison in Richmond on Saturday (7/10), as well as TSO again this year, hopefully. I am assuming they'll go on tour again.

I’m hoping I can talk her into the DC overnight for a nice dinner and TSO. That was so awesome last time

Criminally underrated band. Second best trio to ever come out of Canada

I survived BRRF 2021 !!!
It was a really good line up even though Bizkit and Gojira dropped. Then Bush. Then Philip Anselmo. However there was apparently a lot of negative press coming out from there. They had some logistical problems with vendors but the bands and the sound and the pit security were on point. As for the complaining I’m not sure some of those folks were even there. Why? Because you couldn’t get service unless it was early in the morning or late at night. Some of the stuff I did see were flat out lies
I’m pumped to go back next year…..which might be how long it takes my body to recover.
Rob Zombie brought it. He commented on how happy he was no one was really using their phones and it seemed to get him into it.
I’ve heard OF Skillet but never really paid attention. I think they are a better live band than studio. But live is my only experience with them. I liked them.
5 Finger Death Punch talked too much.
Papa Roach was good even though I’m not a huge fan

Was hyped to see Aaron Jones and that cat is the real deal.
Halestorm blew the festival away. It’s all anyone talked about.
Avatar was entertaining
The Hu was very unique but also good
RoachZilla isn’t really my style of music but those guys are awesome. I got to. Hang out with them


I stopped counting after 20 bands over the weekend. Definitely got my money’s worth!

I’ve seen most of those bands and agree Halestorm brings it. Every. Dam. Time.
Saw them pre covid at the stone pony in Asbury park and Lizzie crushed it. Pretty sure my girl is in love with her.

Zombie is my fav tho. FFDP close second

Halestorm is sooo much better live than studio
FFDP brought it…..when they actually played. Too much yappin.
I didn’t stay for Shinedown to close. I was beat, never was that familiar with them and judging by feedback it was the right decision.
Grooved to some Gemini Syndrome today so that was good!
Can’t wait for next year!

All I can say about the BRRF is. WoW. Absolutely amazing. I cannot wait till tickets go on sale for next year. Loved seeing some bands on my bucket list (Zombie etc) and see some artists that I’ve listened to but wanted to see.
Ayron Jones was probably the most talented musician of the Festival. A mix between Hendricks and Kravitz
FFDP was ok. When they played and didn’t yap
So glad I got to see Megadeath.
After experiencing Body Count from the pit I watched Lamb of God from VIP
The Hu were unique but fun
Avatar is a new guilty pleasure
And Texas Hippie Coalition should be a whole lot bigger than they are!


Followed that up with Christopher Cross this past Tuesday at Harvest in Rocky Mount. Really small Intimate venue with really great sound. Christopher was hit or miss. He either NAILED it (Sailing, Think of Laura) or was a bit off (Ride Like the Wind, Arthur’s Theme). But he just turned 70 so overall great job


Then I finished up with Billy Idol in Roanoke. Ok. He cannot hit the high notes but who can. The crowd was unbelievable! He was at 10 on the energy level from the first song and kept it there. I was really impressed with the show. He did a great job and would love to see him again. UNLESS….it’s the same opening band. Possibly the worst opening act I have seen ever. I cannot even describe it. Someone Cooper. She was atrocious. People clapped because she was done not because they liked her.
